The London Borough of Islington is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.774 billion Islingtonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Upper Street London N1. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Islingtonian economy, worth 437 trillion Minoan tala a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 31,738 Minoan tala, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has just been declared ruler of Islington in an international press conference, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and there have been reports of people marrying housepets. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Islington's national animal is the little owl.

Islington is ranked 81,097th in the world and 4th in London for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,083.29 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
